manifestation

It's useful to have a male perspective at times. Recently, a male friend advised me that I should get a couch if I don't want to remain single all my life. Apparently, the rather bare state of my living room (or as my son refers to it "the play area") doesn't encourage suitors to make a romantic move. On the question of whether I want to be single for the rest of my life, I find I'm actually pretty okay with that thought at the moment. Though I certainly wouldn't rule out a relationship, either. Regardless of all that, I do want a couch.


Carmel needs a van. Hers died. This is pretty crucial, not only because Carmel and Patricia are inconvenienced by not having a vehicle, but because the van has been important in ferrying all our band equipment all over the place. So Elizabeth needs it too.

Ok universe, putting it out there.

Is there a couch yet?

BUT there is a van!

Jen G said...

oh, there might now be a couch! breaking news...

Aggie said...

I felt this coming....
I'm looking for a rug, a coffee table and a desk -- a very specific kind of desk. I guess I better start putting these things out there, right?

Couches are good to have. I'm not as big on leather though.
If she gets a van, she should paint it in funky colours, sort of like the "Scooby-do" van! LOL

I like leather couches. It's a vice of mine. Along with smoking big huge cigars and turning down the pages of library books.

Aha! So! It was you who blew all that rotten-smelling smoke into the last picture book I swiped from the libary. I sneezed so much, I couldn't read it. Actually took it back. And even after I did, my whole den smelled like Fidel Castro's armpit for days...

I'm completely with you on turning down pages, though.

Jen G said...

Aggie, what's so specific about the desk you are looking for?

Coyote, it wasn't me. I may have nasty vices, but I assure you, none of them make a smell like dear ole Fidel's armpit.

Jen G said...

oh, yes and there isn't a couch. There was a partial manifestation, but it was too large. You see, my living room is small and I'm saving the long wall for an upright piano that is in the midst of manifesting itself as well... all this psychic energy... whoo!

If one couch will encourage romance, what would 2 or 3 couches encourage?

I suspect your male friend would have a theory.

Jen G said...

Yes, Ms Army Pants, I suspect this male friend of mine would have at least one theory, if not 2 or 3.

Now I wonder what he would think of my resolve to eschew couches, for the present...?
